Abbott supports patients with advanced heart failure with mechanical pumps that restore blood flow to the body, both for the short- and long-term. We design our pumps to be gentle on the blood while they are working so that patients can live longer and fuller lives.
CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System is driven by the CentriMag Pump with Full MagLev™ Flow Technology. The pump includes a free-floating magnetically levitated rotor for a contact-free environment. The CentriMag System is the only acute mechanical circulatory support system approved for 30-day use*. The CentriMag System includes both pediatric and adult pump options for a wide range of patient types and sizes.
The HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist Device is indicated for short- and long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., as bridge to transplant or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy) for advanced heart failure patients. HeartMate 3 LVAD with Full MagLev™ Flow Technology delivers excellent** survival and safety outcomes as demonstrated in the MOMENTUM 3 Trial at 5 years.1***
The HeartMate II™ LVAD is designed to provide short- or long-term circulatory support for advanced heart failure patients and is indicated for both destination therapy and bridge-to-transplantation in the United States. Backed by more than 10 years of data, the HeartMate II LVAD is the most widely used and extensively studied LVAD in the world, with more than 27,000 patients implanted worldwide.2,3
